    This year's debut of the HTC One M8 was slightly more colorful than last year's M7 unveiling, with a choice between gray, silver, and gold hues. Sure, we eventually saw the One M7 turn up in red and blue, but there were only the silver and gray options out of the gate. So while the M8 is already ahead of the curve (at ...

    Most new device launches go the same way: usually the press gets review units before they’re widely available, and we get to use them for a few days -or a week if we’re lucky- as we work on our review. Then press day arrives. The embargo on media coverage lifts, and everyone posts their reviews and videos at the ...

    What's worse, a device that you hear rumored for months and months but never seems ready to go official, or one that sees a formal announcement, but then never manages to actually go up for sale? It's been over one hundred days since ASUS announced the PadFone X at CES, to be an AT&T exclusive in the US. We were ...

    "Your move, Samsung." That's how we wrapped up last month's review of the HTC One M8, a product that we called "an elegant smartphone for a more civilized age." The One M8 is such an impressive device that it might well be on its way to dominating the smartphone sales charts by now, were it not for the South Korean ...

    LG's G Watch is all set to help kick-off the arrival of Android Wear smartwatches this summer, alongside devices like the Moto 360. Just the other day, in fact, LG put up a nice new collection of teaser images for the G Watch, showing off an alternate color selection. But once the G Watch arrives, what might be next for ...

    If Samsung's Galaxy S5 has one weak spot, could it be the smartphone's camera? We don't mean its performance when everything is working right, either – while it's not the best camera around, especially when we're dealing with low-light conditions, it's by-and-large passable – we mean that it seems to be a magnet for ...

    There are a whole lot of reasons to like HTC's One M8 – we don't go around handing out a 9.1 score in a review to just any phone. Beyond all the handset's features and all the design considerations to keep in mind when making your purchasing decision, it's also worth paying attention to some the bonus stuff: what's ...

    Smartphone thefts are a real thing. Smartphones are valuable, even ones with broken screens or older models. Someone looking to make a quick buck can snag a seemingly basic, beaten smartphone when its owner isn't looking, take it to a classified ads site (not unlike Craigslist) and sell it later that day for a quick ...

    Artistic defocusing? SO hot right now. Nokia, HTC, and most recently Google have all been delivering products aimed at producing the sort of “bokeh” effect you only used to be able to achieve with careful selection of lenses and aperture control. Sony's taken a swing at this, too, but its background defocus app has ...

    Historically it's always been a pain to unlock your smartphone without having to cough a little cash, or without having to beg your carrier to do so with some traveling excuse. AT&T and T-Mobile phones have always been the ideal for this, and now that both Verizon and Sprint smartphones support LTE, and therefore ...

    We recently heard that Samsung would ask Google for some help in sending some of its founding Android engineers to take part in the Apple vs. Samsung trial, to which Google agreed. It's only fair that Google participated in helping Samsung fix these issues since some of these patent claims have mainly to do with ...

    Smartphone screens in the five-inch range and offering 1080p resolutions are pretty much par for the course by now; they've been around for more than a year on any number of flagships, and we're well familiar with what to expect. When it comes to adapting to changing ambient light conditions, that usually means little ...

    Back at the start of the month, Samsung announced its latest series of Android tablets: not the TabPROs we got back in winter, nor the rumored OLED tablets that may still be in development, but the plane-Jane regular Tab 4 models. Leaks didn't make them out to be particularly well-equipped models, but at least the ...

    We've heard a lot about OnePlus, and their first smartphone, the One, or, the "2014 Flagship Killer", as the company has been slowly building up the buzz and anticipation around the device. The phone has been finally made public today as the company announced its first, Cyanogen-powered device. "Never settle" is the ...

    Smartphone audio quality is better now that it's ever been before. We've got handsets capable of 24-bit, 192kHz output like the LG G2, and models with beefy front-facing speakers like HTC and all its BoomSound models. Sometimes, though, you really need a proper external speaker to really appreciate the sound your phone ...
